About This Game

Rise of Crustaceans is an action-packed isometric game with horror elements and top-down visuals. The game takes place during WWII and you play the role of soldiers trying to stop an ancient sea god from taking over the world. This crustacean is doing everything in his power to try and get lands that once his, and our marines are here to stop him.

Immersive, fun gameplay

Every soldier has access to a vast range of weapons and these can help you stay alive for as much time as you can. You need to reload often, otherwise enemies can find you with an empty clip, and it’s game over. The enemies you are facing are a combination of crustaceans and humans, and their primary purpose is to try and kill you as fast as possible. Use your wits in order to kill all the enemies.

Unique environments

The WWII scenery is bringing in a vast range of locations. You can play in bunkers, you can play on the fields or even explore a castle. The main mission is always the same, you need to hunt all those enemies and focus on completing every task that you can in order to win. It’s not easy to achieve what you have in mind, but it will bring in amazing moments.

Defend yourself against multiple waves of crustaceans

Rise of Crustaceans pits you face to face with thousands of crustaceans whose only mission is to kill you as fast as possible. It’s an immersive, fun but also challenging game every time you play. The wave-based gameplay means you will have a certain number of enemies coming to kill you at all costs. Once you finish a wave, you can take a breath for a few seconds, because more enemies are coming to attack you. Rise of Crustaceans is all about bringing in a rewarding sense of immersion and excitement, and it’s a lot of fun too.

Test yourself and improve your skills

In Rise of Crustaceans you are alone against a plethora of enemies. You need to use all your focus to come up with ways to stay alive. This is not a friendly space, as you will constantly be under attack. You need to maintain a true focus on strategies and things you can do in order to win. It’s not an easy thing to achieve, but it can lead to amazing results. Check out Rise of Crustaceans if you love exciting, action-packed games.
